The latest way for MBA students to build their network
May 30, 2013 in Social Networking
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - OnDemandWorld, the mobile platform development company, has announced the release of an addition to their social networking apps called MBA Connect. One of the major reasons people sign up for business school is the chance to create a broad network of contacts, who can help you do everything from land a job to start a business.
Networking is a necessary part of the MBA job hunt and may be the single most important factor in determining whether applicants get interviews. While applicants have to prove themselves to snag the job, they need to know the right people to get their foot in the door in the first place. Then they need people to advocate for them and eventually mentor them. First, however, they must meet these people and win them over.
Some mistakenly believe that plopping down the tuition check is enough to get the ball moving. Others think that acting as you would when making friends in your college dorm is the right approach. But networking is a much finer art. It requires grace, charm, and confidence, more so than most people - even some MBA wannabes realize which is why attending networking events can get too nerve-wracking sometimes.
Today's MBA students are constantly networking online often turning to popular networking sites. The good news is that, this cool new app makes it much much easier for you to build your professional network.
"Studies with MBA students show that the ones who focus on building their network significantly outperform the ones who concentrate on the academic aspects of the course. MBA Connect allows you to view the profiles of MBA students and business practitioners all over the world, so that you can meet, make friends, share your ideas and start building your professional network." Terence Lau said in an interview, Friday.
Once the app is downloaded, you can immediately set up your profile and you're good to go! You can go ahead and browse through thousands of profiles and start meeting people. The nice thing about this is that you get complete control of your profile and decide if you want to give away your location and contact info. Only send your message to chat when you're ready. What's more, you get unlimited access to send and receive messages, as well as to participate in forum discussion on topics that matter to you!
"Personally, aside from the fact that it's fairly simple and easy to use, I also love the idea that it allows you to track who viewed your profile. Admit it, we always want to know who's checking us out."
